Course summary

The key areas of study will be effective communication and study skills and you will be introduced to basic theories and concepts within the discipline.You will:- Develop the skills and knowledge to successfully study at Level 4- Learn about the basic theories and concepts relating to Nutrition and Exercise as Medicine - Be taught by a multi-disciplinary programme team with experience in a range of professional health care, sports and exercise settings If you have a passion for exercise and activity and want to help individuals to lead healthier lifestyles, the Foundation Year leading to BSc (Hons) Nutrition and Exercise as Medicine could be the perfect course for you.Current statistics around obesity, diabetes, inactivity and poor dietary intakes are alarming, showing 29% of UK adults classified as obese and 20% and 14% of year 6 primary school children classified as obese and overweight respectively. In addition, 47 million adults in the UK are suffering with type II diabetes mellitus which emphasises the opportunity and demand for lifestyle-based interventions to facilitate change in morbidity and premature mortality rates. Those who are active and eat well have a decreased chance of developing lifestyle disorders and enjoy an enhanced physical, social and mental health status. Moreover, those who are suffering with disease, disorders, physical restrictions or impairments can benefit greatly from a change in behaviour, which sees them incorporating new approaches within their lifestyle. However, being able to recognise the importance of a healthy lifestyle right through to making positive and consistent behaviour change, requires specialised knowledge and skills - these are what you will develop if you progress on to the BSc (Hons) Nutrition and Exercise as Medicine.
